Tofu Spring Roll with Peanut Butter Sauce
These fresh and crunchy spring rolls are as delicious as they are fun to eat!
- ½ Avocado(s)
- 1 tsp Black Sesame Seeds
- 1 Carrot(s)
- ½ Lime(s)
- 1 Mini Cucumber(s)
- 5 g Mint
- 3 tbsp Peanut Butter
- 47 g Red Cabbage
- 6 Rice Paper Roll(s)
- 50 g Rice Vermicelli
- 200 g Smoked Tofu
- 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1 tbsp Water (not included)
- Bring a pot of water to a boil, add noodles and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Reserve.
- Prepare the ingredients: Cut the carrot into fine strips (julienne), Slice the avocado, Cut the tofu into slices, Cut the cucumber into slices, Place shredded cabbage in a bowl.
- Prepare the sauce: in a bowl mix the soy sauce, lime juice, water and peanut butter. Heat if necessary to achieve a lighter texture. Tip: add hot sauce if desired.
- Dip one rice paper at a time into a large hollow plate or pan filled with warm water. Allow to soften 20-30 seconds. Drain and place onto a work surface.
- Garnish the rice paper leaves with all of the prepared ingredients and mint. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Roll and serve with the peanut butter sauce.
Notes: I totally forgot to add the red cabbage to the rolls and I am so mad at myself. Just think how pretty they would have been with all those colors – green, yellow (I added yellow pepper), orange and purple. Spring rolls are a personal favourite. I am slightly addicted to peanut sauce so this recipe was perfect for me. I don’t think it would have been enough for two people to have as dinner, I think it is better suited to a small lunch or a snack. As of right now that would be my only complaint about MissFresh, their portions are a little on the small side, but at the same time, this was one of their “portion controlled” meals so it was probably meant to be on the small side.
